About Larry Levine

My family and I have been in the real estate business for decades. My father owned his own Real Estate Company, and is now retired. I am licensed in Real Estate in California. When my father first visited The Whaler, he walked into an Open House and bought our lovely studio condo on the spot! We enjoy vacationing, and offering out our various properties to others around the world to enjoy as well!

Larry Levine purchased this condo in 1985

Why Larry Levine chose Lahaina

The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach is a premier oceanfront location. Right in the middle of famed Kaanapali Beach, it's walking distance to just about anything you could ask for. The weather is great all year round, and the views are awesome. The ocean floor is smooth for swimming, and the people are friendly! And the ground floor location is so convenient!

What makes this condo unique

We have an oceanfront swimming pool and new spa, as well as oceanfront gas BBQ grills for your use. There is a weight room, sauna and a nail/massage spa on property, as well as tennis courts. It sits right across the street from the Royal Kaanapali Golf Course, and directly next door to Whaler's Village, a shopping area with restaurants, and even a free Whaling Museum. Snorkeling is just a simple 5 minute walk up the beach to Black Rock where you can find colorful fish, sea turtles, and even an eel! You can para-sail, jet-ski, go for a sunset dinner cruise right off the beach. A quick drive up the road will bring you into historic Lahaina Town!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This guest said they had a great time at our condo, his second visit. Loves the location next to Whaler's Village and the beautiful grounds at The Whaler. Said he hopes to come back every year.

Perfectly located and everything we needed.

I loved our stay here and dealing with Larry was a wonderful experience. He was super helpful in planning a romantic getaway and even when I had some confusion about my dates, he was gracious and even offered to adjust the checkin and out by a day with little hassle.

I ended up keeping the original dates I asked for but the fact that he was so willing to work with me because he had the flexibility to do so, when he didn't have to at all, well it just really set the tone for this trip.

I will absolutely be returning to my new Maui home.

Kind regards,

Anna Paige

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We've stayed in other condo's at the Whaler but this was the first time on the ground floor and found out we prefer it. The condo is well stocked with extra's: beach chairs, boggy boards, snorkel, etc. We'll be staying there again next year.

Very Clean Cozy Convenient and Completely Efficient

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from paradise! We can't wait for our next trip back! We stayed at Whalers which has been our go to place for our last 6 visits to Maui. Each time we have stayed in a different owners unit, this time it was unit #114 and our first time on the ground floor. We are spoiled now by the convenience of just walking off the lani to see the beautiful Maui sunsets or stroll on the beach. It's not for everyone, because you can only lock the lani from the inside, but with that said, we have never feared not locking and or sleeping with only the screen doors closed. You just have to be smart about it and where you leave your valuables. Now on to the condo, super clean and if you are going to be cooking the kitchen has everything you could possibly need! Plenty of space in the bathroom and closet, and on a personal note the tub is great for soaking! The bed was perfect! Comfortable! The only way it could have been better was if it were a King! But for 12 days it was fine. Now the pillows well let's just say they are flat and could be replaced, but again we were ok.

The t.v. Isn't user friendly but we managed and truly how much tv do you watch when you're in paradise! I do think that if the wallpaper were stripped and the walls painted a light delicate blue or perhaps a light shade of green it would completely set things off!

As far as the owner well I have nothing but complete praise for Larry! I added a day to my stay after original reservation was made and not only did he promptly get back to me he was very accommodating, answered emails within a short time. Thanks Larry! In short while we were there I did look at other condos for our next visit, thinking that perhaps we would get one with a bedroom but I have to say, I didn't find one that was so convenient and perfectly matched our needs so if this unit were available YES we would stay here again no hesitation! Close to the laundry in the hallway as well as the trash drop and elevators and yet you absolutely would not know they exist once you are inside! Hubby thought it was perfect so don't hesitate if you are looking for all these qualities in a unit, stay here and Aloha to coffee every morning on the lani! It's so very peaceful. Aloha and thanks again Larry

Owner's Response: Hi= Thanks for the very complimentary and comprehensive review. I'm glad that you enjoyed the convenience of the condo as well as it's location. Just one thing to note, you can ask for a key to the lanai doors from the front desk, and enter andn exit that way and lock it up if you wish. Hopefully when you return you'll see how convenient it is! Mahalo!

Quiet,and friendly.Great location .

  • 4 of 5

Ideal location everything within reach. BBQ 's where great for socialising. We just loved our Condo. Larry you do need to throw out any thing in the food line that is left by other visitors, a bit of a health risk. Maybe even cull your utensils . Thankyou for the beach chairs,towels etc . Love the pool!!Definitly will return Cheers Wendy and Shane

Owner's Response: Hi W & S - Glad you took advantage of our oceanfront BBQ's ! Thanks for the compliments on the condo and the few extras we try to keep for guests' use. Typically the cleaning lady does throw everything in the fridge out after each guest, sorry if she didn't do it before your arrival. Some guests do appreciate items like Ketchup, Mayo, condiments, etc. so they don't have to buy it themselves. Either way, you're welcome back from Australia whenever you're returning!
